On June 18, 2021, Associated Press photojournalist Dieu-Nalio Chery left Haiti after gang members threatened his life because he was covering gang activity in Port-au-Prince. Fearing for his life, and thanks to various photojournalism agencies, Chery relocated to New York City, where he will temporarily work as a researcher and photojournalism professor at CUNY university in New York City. 

In this interview, Chery shares the circumstances that provoked his exit from Haiti.
